Bobby should go - you know Bobby used to follow Jorma in the coffee houses and try to play like him before he teamed up with Jerry.

Jerry loved Jorma as well, in the very early days when Jorma played solo acoustic (Pre Airplane) Jerry used to tell folks "You got to see this guy play, he does the old timey stuff and he does it right"
Always a stickler for true representation of a tune!

This thread is reminding me of what a loss Richard Farina was at such a young age such a long time ago.

People would have dug him the same way they dig Jorma and Bromberg. Okay, maybe not the same way specifically but you get the point.

How true BD. Music was far, far from his only talent. A quite accomplished man at an early stage of his all too short life.
